Even the best doctors and hospitals make mistakes

When they do, patients are the ones to suffer. Medical malpractice can lead to serious injuries, infections, or even death. Lengthy and unexpected hospitalizations can drain a family’s finances.

Before co-founding the firm of Hillsborough Defense, Sam Harden represented doctors and hospitals in legal claims throughout Florida. This experience gave him valuable insight into the inner workings of the medical industry. Since that time, he has taken the side of patients, working to uphold patients’ rights and hold doctors and hospitals accountable when their mistakes hurt people.

Dedicated to protecting patients

At Hillsborough Defense, we are dedicated to protecting patients from medical malpractice. Let our experience help you maximize your recovery. Contact us to set up a free initial appointment so you can meet with our attorneys at a location convenient for you.

We take all medical malpractice cases on what’s called a “contingency fee” agreement. That means that you pay us nothing unless we get money for you. We will investigate what happened, consult with expert physicians, and pursue the best result in your case.

What should you bring to your initial appointment?

  • A copy of any “Power of Attorney” or “Health Care Proxy” you may have
  • The names of your or your loved one’s doctors
  • Any paperwork you received from the hospital or doctor
  • Copies of any health insurance cards or health insurance information
  • Any medical records you may have

Medical malpractice cases are often complicated. You shouldn’t have to face the consequences of medical malpractice by yourself. We will consult with the right expert physicians and nurses, analyze the medical records, obtain the statements of the doctors and hospital staff, and make sure you get the best recovery possible.

Medical malpractice claims have a two-year “statute of limitations”. This means there is a time limit to bring any claim you may have for medical malpractice. If you believe you or a loved one may have a medical malpractice claim, please don’t wait before speaking to an attorney. Contact us today to set up a free consultation.
